a 3rd alteration, from dead.net:

"loose with the truth, baby, it's your fire, but baby don't get burned."

1. loose with the truth, maybe its your fire
baby, I hope you don't get burned

2. loose with the truth, maybe it's your fire
but baby...don't get burned

3. loose with the truth, baby, it's your fire,
but baby don't get burned.

huh?
